people are. i know a lot of people watch " 24" and jack bauer always knows where people are when they use their cell phone, and we can triangulate according to sell towers, but the fact is we really do not know where people are, so it becomes important that people are using cell phones to call in any emergency to save their location and know where they are. we have two things we're working on with 911, which is language, and also say your location if you are using a cell phone. very important. so we are working on education materials for that. in translation, it is interesting to note that of the calls we receive -- and we received close to 1,013,000 in 2009, which is approximately 3% of all the calls -- the top four language requiring translation were spanish, cantonese, mandarin, and russian. there's a big gap between cantonese and mandarin, and as we go down to russian. so the service has been working out well. important websites -- i want to draw your attention to the shakeout website again so you can register. want to draw your attention so you pass along to your employees and contin

number one priority, how to use resources efficiently. i'm happy to introduce dr. johnson, who will be working with us on the governance project. she is an international expert on post-disaster recovery, and she will be helping us figure out how to make decisions in a disaster event. one of the things we're looking at, which is very exciting, is the concept of using our incident command system principles to extend into post- disaster recovery. this is laurie's expertise, so we will be national leaders on trying to figure out the best possible model for using ics over a long time, and we hope to really instigate best practices in the federal government and fema, department of homeland security, so we can be using these best practices principles, so i'm really looking forward to some of that. as you know, one of our key successes is the life lines council, which is a group of 25 to 30 of our life line providers, includes communication, transportation, power, water, sewer, debris management, and we recently have added our financial institutions. organizations of banks, which are d

federal investigators this morning and joins you now -- and joins us now with this live report. >> reporter: good morning, tori. yes, it's been almost a week since this fireball and explosion and fire here in san bruno. there are still so many questions. the ntsb is out here this morning. we're getting more information about where this investigation is headed. key among the question is how did this start, obviously and why did it burn so long? let's talk about the cause. the ntsb has been asking for anyone to come forward if they smelled gas in the days leading up to the explosion. there have been about 90 e- mails sent to the ntsb. but the ntsb said they only had one person who smelled gas and that was two or three weeks before this happened. if they didn't smell gas, that would be a clue. >> if people smell gas in advance, that suggests a failure, where gas is coming out and people smell it. that's a different kind of failure than a catastrophic failure. that would help us determine the cause of this explosion. that's why that's so crucial to us. >> reporter: there's also the
